“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.” - Revelation 19:11 (NKJV)
The Psalmist says this about God:
“O Lord God of hosts, who is like You, O mighty Lord? Your faithfulness surrounds You [as an intrinsic, unchangeable part of Your very being.” - Psalms 89:8 (AMP)
Faithfulness is who God is. It’s not who He attempts to be or something He tries to do. It’s simply who He is! Revelation 19:11 tells us that He is called Faithful and True - that is His name.
The things we consider to be constant and reliable, besides God, are things God deliberately left with us to remind us of His unchanging nature.
For example, He says this through prophet Jeremiah:
“Thus says the LORD: ‘If you can break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night, so that there will not be day and night in their season, then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant, so that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levites, the priests, My ministers.” - Jeremiah 33:20-21 (NKJV)
In other words, the Lord is saying that as long as we don’t see the cessation of the day and night, His covenant with David and His seed, which is Christ, can be counted on.
The Lord did this for us to trust Him. He wants us to perpetually live with the consciousness of His faithfulness - that by acknowledging the breaking of a new day, we would invariably be in the zone of His faithfulness. Hallelujah!
Did light break through the dark clouds of your heaven this morning? Has your night ever refused to happen? If your answer is a yes for the first question and a no for the second question, it means that you are one of those who can always count on the faithfulness of God!
